Sen. Carole Migden Decides Against Running For Supervisor

Former Senator Carole Migden (D-SF) had been toying with the idea of running for Supervisor in the 10th district here in San Francisco.  It seems she has decided that it wouldn’t be such a good idea:

Alas, “the reality of what that would have meant, including moving, was just too complicated,” the South of Market Democrat said.(SF Chronicle)

Alas, she was tripped up by the complication of moving from SoMa to the Bayview. As somebody who has moved out of SoMa once, I’ll testify to it being a pain in the butt. There’s no parking and you get people honking at the truck. It was really an annoying day.

Yeah, I could see how one day of moving hell would make you want to not run for office.

  1. Migden lives in a condo at 3rd and Folsom.  She could move to 7th and Berry – about half a mile – and be in the district.  But she’s been in her place since 1992, and you can’t sell SOMA condos these days anyways.  So taking a $100k+ hit to run for supervisor is pretty difficult to justify, unless you’re extraordinarily wealthy, like Newsom.
